Not just good, but great little escapes
As a person living with a chronic illness that is especially troublesome during the winter months, in the freezer section of the grocery store, or anywhere inside or out where the temperatures are below the mid-70s (I'm talking to you restaurants where I need to dine with my coat on!), finding a warm and cozy escape is essential to my health and well-being.
Luckily, I do not have to look very far for such places because I can find them in my home, and that's all good, no?
2. A warm bath with lots of lovely-scented bubbles. Enough said.
3. A cozy bed with my electric blanket, down comforter, and T by my side. (Well, it's better when he doesn't disrupt my sleep by taking over the bed and all the covers, too!)
1. A snuggly sofa with T, the kids, and me under my fleece blanket all cuddled up watching our favorite TV shows or movies. (This is best when the kids refrain from wiggling or talking in squeaky stuffed animal voices and there is actually something worth watching!)
A warm bath with bubbles, a cozy bed, and snuggling with my family - three great ways to escape the cold. What are yours?
